Thank you to everyone who participated in the recent survey regarding the Impact of COVID-19 on Downtown Marquette businesses. The MDDA received 67 responses, which have been compiled into the presentation below:
The data is consistent and sobering. It’s clear that individual businesses are struggling at this time, as is Downtown Marquette as a whole. Rest assured that we are all in this together, and though we face challenges now and in the weeks and months ahead, we will reach brighter days as a downtown community.
This information is being shared with the Marquette DDA Board of Directors, the Marquette City Commission, and with state and federal legislators so that they, too, are informed about the obstacles we’re facing and can partner with us in efforts to safely re-engage our local economy.
